Figuring Things Out

Today my 8 year old son asked me, "Mom, what month is 7 months before October?"

I replied, "I don't know."

Then he said, "March! That means you got pregnant with my little brother on March 17th 2003."


That caught me a little off guard.

Then he said, "I wonder what time."

Just then I choked on my gum.

No more math lessons for him!

Look Mom!

Yesterday morning my 8 year old son was holding his little brother's teddy bear. The bear was face down on the counter and my 8 year old had one hind leg in each hand. He gave a tug to the left leg and then to the right and continued doing so. He looked up at me and said, "Look mom, I'm milking the bear."

Being the good mom that I am, I laughed. Which only encouraged him.

I tried to stop. Then I heard my husband say, "Please stop milking the bear."

I laughed some more.

"Please stop milking the bear" definitely falls into the list of Things you never expected to utter say.

I'm afraid my 8 year old has a lot to learn.
